Plane depressurized.  Everyone asphyxiated.  It then  traveled hundreds of miles with no live souls on board.  Military scrambled jet to intercept.  “Ghost plane” flew til it ran out of fuel.

 

Saw the "Air Disasters" on this.  Turned out the fresh air valve on the plane malfunctioned.  The pilots would have had about 10-15 seconds to get on supplemental oxygen before motor and cognitive impairment due to hypoxia.  Luckily the plane crashed in an empty field.  A true tragedy.

It was a sad, sickening, horrifying day.  The entire (interested) world watched/listened to it unfold as it happened.  Heavy, to say the least.

 

He was always one of my favorites.  RIP.

I wondered that day if they would shoot it down if near populated areas. RIP Payne

Not totally related, but: Isn’t Shaq a Bills fan? I’m not 100%, but I feel like on MTV cribs years ago he had a room in his house dedicated to the Bills

 

Not sure but I know NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick is.

How is this Bills related? He wore any NFL team colors, dependent on the proximity of the closest franchise.   
 

I am sorry the way his life ended though......

This is an NFL board with a Bills focus. Not everything has to 100% pertain to the Bills. 

 

Now you have been educated.

I was a big Payne fan! Too bad I never got to see him play live in person. He went out on top with US Open and Ryder Cup that year. But yeah colorful guy and dressed lt up on the course!

 

I lived in Orlando in the 90s and saw Payne about town a few times at the supermarket, post office and saw him play @ Bay Hill a few times. Also was lucky enough to be at the 1999 Ryder Cup for the big comeback on Sunday and when Payne was so gracious to Colin Montgomerie.

This is complete speculation on my part but if this is even true about him having a room dedicated to the Bills it might have something to do with the 90s era Bills in particular because that was around the time he was coming up.  I would have to say Shaq is not a true Bills fan because I feel like we would hear way more about it but he might have a fondness for the Jim Kelly/Bruce Smith/Thurman Thomas days...he might even know some of them personally but like I said I'm just 100 percent speculating.  I don't remember ever hearing this story.

Some golfers like Mcllroy, Thomas and other players at the tournament today will be dressing either like Tiger Woods today, or using some similar theme or logos to show respect/love for him, and hoping he gets well. As for players who passed away too early, near the end of their great careers, Thurman Munson, who died in a plane crash too.

Speaking about athletes/golfers being Bills fans..does anybody know the backstory with Phil Mickelson and the Bills?  I'm not sure if he's a true Bills fan but I know he likes the Bills.  He was even tweeting about them last year during the run we were on.

I remembered this is a Sportscenter Kid, but never heard the details., but remember being bummed out.  Hopefully that was an easier way to go than living through it awake

Sometimes when I'm channel surfing, I get sucked into this show...and always sorry I did.  Often times just the stupidest little thing, either mechanical or pilot error, brings these jets down.  It's almost enough to quit flying.
